Say what you will about crappy bagged teas, I can’t hear you! This is something I was raised on, and it is a tremendous comfort to me, just as all the Twining’s teas are. Sometimes I’m a tea snob, but in this case I just can’t be. Guess it’s like tea junk food? And believe me, that comforting quality comes in handy during midterms. Steep it strong with just-boiled water, and then add some milk, and sugar / stevia.

Good for you! Like what you damn well like, I say. My mom drinks Good Earth’s Original tea and has for as long as I can remember. Even after converting to loose leaf I still drink a cup of it every now and then.

I second that. About 1/3 of my tea cabinet is bagged teas. Sometimes I just want something simple® and easy.

Twinnings might not make anything terribly special or exotic, but they still know how to make a good, solid tea. I love their Lady Grey in particular, so what if it’s bagged?

I’m coming around to bagged teas a bit more. I had a very strong stance against them over the last couple of years after tasting the difference with loos leaf. However it is the high quality tea bags that have been convincing me that all bagged teas should not be grouped together as dust and fannings. I just purchased the Twinings Irish Breakfast bagged tea last night, and will be trying it out today. Like the lovely commenters are also saying, sometimes it’s just easier with bagged tea. Thanks for being bold and standing your ground!!! :)
